Hoops Anyone?

 First off, if you don't know about or the nextdoor app, you definitely need to check those out.  That and the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store have been invaluable resources for free and super low cost items for almost any need that you might have. A neighbor up in Allen, his kids outgrew their basketball hoops goal.  We got it completely FREE.  The hardest part was transporting it down to the lake, but slowly and surely we managed. We hope to have lots of fun things to enjoy during your stays there.  Not only lake toys but basketball, volleyball, ladder golf, cornhole.  We have some big plans. Didn't get a ton done this weekend, but here is the short list of activity. We got the stairway ceiling painted.  It was just mudded and textured, but now it's painted too. Here is an updated picture of the living room coming together, with our kids hard at work, as you can tell. And then, ever so slowly we have been updating the wall decor.  That has been one of the fun

Shaker Style Cabinet Doors

 Well now that we got all the room doors done, it's time to move onto a new project.  We are trying to update the 70's style kitchen to something a little more modern.  But there are really only 2 problems there.  1) I don't have a clue what I am doing. 2) We don't have the money to hire someone that does.  So what do ya do?  Watch a bunch of youtube! Chelsea finished up with the wallpaper in the main bathroom, and it turned out pretty great. Also got the new cabinet draw pulls on. Now we just need to decide what color for the walls in there. New kitchen curtain tie backs installed.  Pretty sweet. New king size beds finally assembled and ready for use.  Still waiting on Nebraska Furniture Mart to deliver the stinking nightstands.  Almost 1 year worth of delivery chain issues? Sure. Now we got 2 kings.  2 queens. 2 bunkbeds. and we are considering putting in a trundle / daybed that was gifted to us from her excellent uncle. So now it sleeps 12. (8 adults and 4 kids) We a

Holiday Weekend Update

IT REALLY TOOK FOREVER! But we finally got all the doors updated and installed. I like the way they turned out. This might seem kinda silly, but in other door related news, all the bedroom and bathroom doors that needed locks on them, now have locks on them. We finally got the King bed that we ordered in January in and have started getting it assembled.  But oddly enough, the night stands still have not arrived. We have also started assembling the king bed for the upstairs too. Started putting in the wallpaper in the main hallway bathroom. I got some poles, to start working on some new street signs for the neighborhood. And finally we were offered a boat for free.  But with the amount of work that we currently have, there is NO WAY that we are ready to undertake another project right now.  Anyone want a boat? Just let me know. Long weekend.  Better get back to it.  We will see you all real soon.  Take care!
